Gillian Wearing

I’m desperate
Throughout the past two decades, Gillian Wearing’s films, photographs and sculptures have investigated public personas and private lives. Since the beginning of her career, the artist has drawn from techniques of theater, reality television and fly-on-the-wall documentary-making to construct narratives that explore personal fantasies and confessions, individual traumas, cultural histories, and the role of the media.

New Age Demanded
“New Age Demanded” tries to send a strong message regarding the role of the artist, who in each era is called upon to offer something new, powerful and desperate. The artist, according to Rafman, has to represent the impossible: the true character of an epoch, but also its inevitable decline.
